Kelly courses praised

Fri 1 Apr

Andrew Kelly's hard work planning Kilnsey Day 3 courses paid off. Despite the extremes of the weather, competitors were complimentary about the challenge of the open limestone terrain. Most found it a good contrast to the rough Wass forest on Day 2.

Thanks also to all the AIRE members who helped to make the JK a success. Especially on Day 3 the stiles team, and the gallant band who collected controls in torrential hail at the end of the day. We don't have to do it again for another ten years or so!
